Seniors' dental problems and solutions
Seniors’ oral health is important to enhance their quality of life, promote healthy eating and keep them looking young. Technological advances allow you to keep your teeth until a ripe old age—as long as you take the necessary precautions!
The most common oral problems in seniors are:
- Dry mouth (xerostomia)
- Loss of teeth
- Pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions
The main causes of these problems are:
- Inadequate saliva, secondary to medication
- Functional limitations for dental care
- A decline in immune defenses
- Memory problems
In addition, in the case of non-independent seniors, dental care is unfortunately not a priority. We offer solutions for patients who are physically unable to have adequate dental hygiene where they live.
For patients suffering from xerostomia or periodontal infections, who have lost their teeth or who have pain, we have the right solutions.
